Christmas Gift Wrapping Tips And Ideas

Half the fun of giving a gift is watching it being opened. Even more fun is seeing the look on the recipient’s face when you hand them a perfectly wrapped Christmas present. Not only do these gifts make quite an impression on anyone you hand them to, but they can be just as beautiful as any of the other decorations in your home, and add to the festive atmosphere.

Christmas Gift Wrapping Tips And IdeasYou do not have to hire someone else to wrap your Christmas gifts to make an impression, however. You can show off your skills with some of these easy tips and unique ideas.

Gift Wrapping Tips

Double sided tape is your friend. To create those perfect seams and a professional look, use double sided tape to tuck and stick errant bits of wrapping paper and ribbon.

Always use a flat surface. To keep seams flat and corners tight, avoid wrinkles and bulges by wrapping gifts on a large, flat, clean surface.

Measure your paper. To get the perfect amount of paper, roll out some paper, center the gift so that there is less paper on either side of the gift and more on the top and bottom. After the gift is centered, cut the paper.

Unique Gift Wrapping Ideas

✅ For a simple and amazingly chic look, use kraft paper instead of the usual wrapping paper. Kraft paper is very sturdy, allowing for crisp edges and no wrinkling.

Use some colored ribbon and a few of the following ideas and all of your gifts will look perfect and oh so trendy.

Extra tip: for gifts that are in boxes, use patterned tissue paper that coordinates with the color of the ribbon or bow on the outside of the box. For example, if you used a red ribbon or bow, use red gingham-printed tissue paper. It is a simple touch that pulls the whole look together.

Coordinating Colors

Avoid overdoing it with colors and patterns. If you use a patterned wrapping paper, chose a solid colored ribbon and/or bow that coordinates with the colors in the pattern.

If you want to use a patterned or multicolored ribbon and/or bow, choose a solid colored paper that works with the colors you chose. Otherwise no matter how perfect your wrapping job is, it will look so busy that it will come off as messy.

Wide Christmas Ribbon

While thin ribbons might be cute and dainty, wide ribbon makes your gift wrapping look cleaner and more professional. For a simple yet complicated-looking project, use multiple thicknesses of ribbon layered over each other.

Bow Perfection

Nothing pulls together a gift wrapping project quite like a bow. The store-bought bows that you can buy in a bag anywhere don’t quite do the job, though.

To make your own impressive bows, look for simple tutorials online. Or if you prefer to buy your bows, look for them at craft stores where the employees make bows by hand.

Dress It Up

There’s more to a truly unique gift wrapping job than some ribbon and a fancy bow. Dress up your Christmas gifts with trinkets, baubles, and fancy gift tags.

Try adding pieces of artificial holly, mistletoe, or other floral bits. Make fancy-looking tags out of sample paint squares cut into shapes, flat glittery ornaments, or tiny wooden sample spoons. The possibilities are endless, so get creative and put a truly personal touch on your gift wrapping projects.
